    King Cake Recipe : Food Network Kitchens : Recipes : Food Network
    King cake is what we eat around Mardi Gras time. They just started popping up in stores around Christmas, and they'll stop around Mardi Gras day, which is Feb. 12th this year. Every year it's on a different day. Next year it'll be on March 4th.

    I have a friend that prefers the "plain" cakes as you linked to. However, I prefer the ones with cream cheese filling (she doesn't care for that filling). We recently found some from WalMart that have a strawberry jelly/jam filling we can both agree on.

    The idea behind the king cake is that you hide the plastic baby inside by poking it thru the bottom of the cake. People will cut their slice of the cake... and if they find the baby in their slice, they are supposed to buy the next king cake. This "tradition" is not really adhered to, but it's probly what has kept king cakes alive with the tradition of Mardi Gras.

    I have another friend with a superb recipe with the cream cheese filling. I'll have to see if I can get ahold of it and post it for you guys....

    Sour Cream King Cake
    (A Southern Living Recipe)


    Makes 2 cakes (about 18 servings)
    Prep: 30 min.; cook: 10 min.; stand: 5 min.; rise: 1 hr. 30 min.; bake: 16 min.


    1 (16 oz. container sour cream
    1/3 cup sugar
    cup butter
    1 teaspoon salt
    Cook first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring often, until butter melts. Set aside, and cool mixture to 100 to 110 F.


    2 (1/4 oz.) envelopes active dry yeast
    cup warm water (100 to 110 F.)
    1 tablespoon sugar
    Stir together yeast, warm water, and sugar in a 1-cup glass measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.


    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    6 to 6 cups bread flour (I used all purpose flour)
    Beat sour cream mixture, yeast mixture, eggs, and 2 cups of flour at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until smooth. Reduce speed to low, and gradually add enough remaining flour (4 to 4 cups) until a soft dough forms.
    Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes). Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.
    Cover and let rise in a warm place (85), free from drafts, 1 hour or until dough is doubled in bulk.
    Punch down dough, and divide in half. Roll each portion into a 22x12-inch rectangle. Spread with preferred filling.


    Cream cheese filling


    Beat cups sugar, 2 (8oz.) package of softened cream cheese, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and one large egg at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly on each dough rectangle, leaving 1-inch borders.


    *Roll up each dough rectangle, jelly-roll fashion, starting at 1 long side. Place one dough roll, seam side down, on lightly greased baking sheet. Bring ends of roll together to form an oval ring, moistening and pinching edges together to seal. Repeat with second dough roll.
    Cover and let rise in a warm place (85), free from drafts, 20 to 30 minutes or until dough is doubled in bulk.
    Bake at 375 for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden. Slightly cool cakes on pans on wire racks (about 10 minutes). Drizzle Creamy Glaze evenly over warm cakes; sprinkle with colored sugars, alternating colors and forming bands. Let cool completely.
    Creamy Glaze (even if you don’t make the King Cake, this is the best tasting glaze ever!)
    3 cups powdered sugar
    3 tablespoons butter, melted
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 to 4 tablespoons milk
    Stir together first 4 ingredients. Stir in 2 tablespoons milk, adding additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until spreading consistency.


    You may use the following filling in place of the cream cheese.


    1/3 cup butter, softened
    cup sugar
    1 teaspoons ground cinnamon


    After rolling dough into rectangles, spread 1/3 cup softened butter evenly on each rectangle, leaving a 1-inch border. Stir together cup sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over butter on each rectangle. *Then continue as per the instructions for the cream cheese filling.


    Ingredient list:
    1 (16oz.) container sour cream,
    1/3 cup sugar
    cup butter
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 (1/4 oz.) envelopes active dry yeast
    cup warm water
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    6 to 6 cups bread flour (I used all purpose flour)
    cup sugar
    2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
    1 large egg
    2 teaspoon vanilla
    3 cups powdered sugar
    3 tablespoons butter, melted
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 to 4 tablespoons milk

    Are you thinking of the traditional Oreo cookies?

    They're great with milk, and they taste great with coffee too. The chocolate cookie brings out the flavor of many types of coffee. However, I wouldn't think of dunking the Oreos in my coffee like I dunk them in milk.

    Edward,

    That is a great question! For me it's anyting sweet. EXCEPT Little Debbie anything. I HATE THAT LINE OF DESERTS WITH A PASSION; ever since my younger days .

    I guess it was the artificial sweetners they used way back when. Then about five years ago, I gave them another go and "Blaah" the taste was the same.

    I just can't do little Debbie my friend.

    Cheers
